Dry Erase Binders and Tablets for Back to School and Teacher Appreciation Gifts

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Wallternatives. I received a free sample of the product for the purpose of this review. All opinions are my own.


I think we might just be the last people in the US of A to go back to school.  My girls just barely started yesterday.

Now, let me start out by saying that I am cheap.  My friends make fun of me, my husband makes fun of me, my kids complain All.  The.  Time. that I am cheap. 

But this time I think it worked to their advantage when we took some cheap (17 cents +Staples ) tablets and binders and gave them a little facelift with a couple of simple vinyl pieces

The first one here is my kindergarteners binder.  I took a +Wallternatives Blue frame, a piece of dry erase vinyl, and some thin +Duck Brand Tape

A little side note about the Wallternatives Blue Photo Frame Fabric Decal Set..  They come in a set of 6 so I went through and picked which of the frames would fit the binder and the tablet the best.  There are smaller ones and larger ones.  If I remember right the rectangle one on the binder is the largest of all the frames. 



First I measured what size the frame was and cut the dry erase vinyl about a 1/2 inch bigger.  Then I placed the dry erase first on the binder and then the frame.  Then a little accent with the Duck Tape and my kindergartener was one very happy little girl!

 For my 3rd Graders table we basically did the same thing, but we added a couple stickers to the mix as well.

I am so glad that my girls enjoyed putting these together.  They were so excited to be able to have a something that NO ONE ELSE would have in the entire school.

So, in the end 2 happy girls = 1 very happy mom!

Oh and if you are looking for some really cute vinyl, removable wallpaper, and super cute chalkboard decals head on over to Wallternatives.  Seriously, they have the cutest stuff!

Great idea! This is a great project to do with my Girl Scouts! This is why I love reading blogs, such great inspiration of endless possibilities.

That is such a great idea! I wish my kids were allowed to decorate their binders like that. Oh well, maybe in middle school.

I am sure she would! My girls loved doing it!

I would love to see them if you do make some!

I didn't even think about doing this for an activity with girls that age! I do activities with girls that range in age from 8-11 twice a month and they would love this!

Bobbie S said...

Bummer! Hopefully they let them in middle school.

It certainly is nice for a kid to be able to personalize a binder or two!
